Adult DWS tours: You have seen the movies of the climbing superstars battling up golden limestone cliffs above the Mediterranean Sea. Well, you don’t have to climb 5.12 to enjoy the freedom of Deep Water Soloing! Adult DWS tours are for women and men, ages 18 and over, who can Consistently top rope 5.10b/c, or 6b, and who are looking for a new and exciting experience.
Amos will guide you through the different areas of Mallorca. Having in-depth knowledge of the island, MCC guides will find the appropriate challenge for your ability, while also ensuring that safety is a chief concern.
Adult DWS tours are best done in September after the rush of summer is over and the water is at one of its warmest of the year or in June. The weather has also started to cool off then making for better sending temps. The focus on the Adult DWS tours is to give the experienced climber a safe introduction to the world of DWS.
We will focus on an appropriate progression in routes and venues. Safe falling over water and water exits (how we get out of the sea once we fall in) are our main safety concerns. Then we will start to push the grades a bit and work toward climbing at or near our limit while un-roped over the sea. Amos will help you successfully experience DWS through route demonstration, coaching while on route either from the rock or rappel. On some of the higher or difficult top outs, we may do some top rope rehearsal to dial in the moves and gain more confidence before the big DWS.
MCC uses a combination of rope work and mountain sense of certified mountain guides with ocean awareness and lifeguard skills to keep you safe on the rock over the sea. Amos’ degree in adventure education and Miguel’s teaching background complement their experience coaching the American Bouldering Series competitors to give you the best experience deep water soloing and bouldering. The adult tours include transportation from the east coast to the crag, group gear, ropes, dry bags, floatation devices and guiding. Guest is responsible for travel to Palma, their personal climbing gear and lodging and food while in Mallorca.
